Former Mayors Join Surface Water Opposition

Bend, water, surface

Posted By on Mon, Nov 7, 2011 at 11:28 PM

Opponents of the city’s surface water project have grown into a who’s who of local business and political interests. Now they’re taking their case directly to the Bend City Council. At least two former mayors will be present to officially hand over the 1,000 or so signatures gathered by the anti-surface water contingent this week during a press event outside city hall on Thursday afternoon. (12-12:30)

At this point, it’s not clear which former mayors have thrown their weight behind the opposition movement but Allan Bruckner, Bob Woodward and Oran Teater are all potential candidates. The three have previously added their collective voice to the effort to forestall another costly city-backed project, the Juniper Ridge industrial and high tech campus initiative that has produced few returns for the city. Other likely candidates are Ruth Burleigh and Bruce Abernethy.
